Reparations Pro and Con at "On With Wilmer"

Wilmerleon This Saturday, August 19, I'll be on Wilmer Leon's talk show "On With Leon," on xm satellite radio (channel 169) from 2-3 EST, talking about Reparations Pro and Con.  I'm looking forward to the discussion.  One of Dr. Leon's hallmarks is reasoned discussion.  I remember a rich discussion with him about the Tulsa riot of 1921.

I expect we'll talk about all sorts of things, like: why reparations is emerging as an issue for discussion now; what the case looks like, as well as the problems with the case; and where the movement's going.  In particular I'll be talking some about the issues of monument law and cemetery access, which I think are two places where property doctrine has something to contribute.

If you have access to xm satellite radio, I hope you'll tune in at 2pm EST on Saturday.  And when the book actually hits the store shelves (or at least the warehouse) I'll be posting a little bit more about it.  I expect reparations will be a topic much in the news in the next few months, especially after Brown University's Steering Committee on Slavery and Justice releases its much-anticipated report.
